Hogarth by ArtofTy
Hello friends!  Hogarth is a character I created for Hex MMOTCG.  We recently spoiled him along with some cool lore for a new feature going into our game.  Here is a snippet written by our teams Lore master Mike Kirchoff:

Gerhardt Hogarth was born into a wealthy family, but rejected his birthright to study magic at the Great Academy of Cerulea. His intelligence and obsessive fixation on the undiscovered capabilities of Hexing Gems made him admired amongst the faculty. However, his increasingly erratic behavior unnerved his fellow students.

The Great Academy had no choice but to expel Hogarth in the aftermath of a magical catastrophe that seriously injured three students and cost Hogarth his left arm. (Hogarth’s family were forced to endow the Academy with an exceedingly generous financial donation to keep the details of the “incident” confidential.)

Banished, injured, and increasingly mad, Hogarth began his two decades of wandering.

During a perilous excursion to the Hyperborean Mountains, Hogarth found the arena of the Frost Ring. He was the first mortal to step onto the arena floor in more than two thousand years. He quickly became fascinated with this ancient, forgotten place. Hogarth decided to dedicate his life to discovering the arena’s secrets as well as the spirits that haunted its frozen walls.

Hogarth managed to rebuild his missing arm from magical ice. He also discovered three sentient frozen heads, former members of the Order, which he stuck on a single long pike who became his constant companions:

•             Crispin, a human scholar and mage of the Order who claims to know everything about everything.

•             Mulug, an orc cleric whose centuries of not having a body have left him embittered.

•             Goneril, a female elf warlock who claims to have been the founder and leader of the Order, but Crispin and Mulug both deny the truth of this claim.

On a crisp autumn morning, a courier handed a wrinkled parchment to Archmage Wrenlocke, chancellor of the Academy of Cerulea. As the Archmage unrolled the soggy scroll, he saw a few scant words scrawled in the shaky hand of a madman:

“The Frost Ring has been prepared. The backside of this missive serves as a map to its location. Alert the reckless, the unwise, the imprudent, and tell them to come. Urge them to bring their swords and their spells. Gold and glory await the victorious.

The art internship role has now been filled.  Thank you everyone who applied for the position!  We had many talented individuals to choose from and the decision was very difficult.  If the team needs any additional help I will be sure to post another journal. :)

Hello friends!

I wanted to reach out to the Deviant Art community and see if anyone would be interested in an onsite internship at Hex Entertainment.  I should mention up front that this would be an unpaid position and only require about 10 hours a week spread out in a way that best suits the persons schedule.  We would need help for about a month, potentially longer.  It is aimed more at students who are looking to see inside a game development studio, make some industry contacts and would like to get some professional experience on their resume to kick start their career.  Here are some things you would be helping us with:

- Organizing our massive database of artwork and unifying formatting of Photoshop files
- Updating documentation for the art database
- Separating elements of a flat image into layers and painting in minor missing parts.

You would be working directly with me (the art director on the project) and have access to our onsite kitchen and our Wednesday game nights.  

We are located in Lake Forest California and your own transportation is required.  For those interested please leave me a note here on DA or send an email to:

Thank you guys!
